The Man Booker Prize longlist was announced today. In an exciting battle for only one to rule them all, the road to winning the Man Booker Prize is not easy. From this "longlist," six books will be chosen later this year by a panel of judges for the "shortlist," and then eventually a single winner will emerge. Exciting!
We are proud to be hosting several author events this summer. Each author will be in our store for either a short talk, a short reading, a book signing, or all of the above! Here's who we've got on the lineup for our Summer Author series...
